I've been so busy with juggling grenades at work and working over time, I've been too tired to really do any reading when I get home/on my days off. As a result, I'm as far into The Martian now as when I last talked about it, which is about chapter 11 or so. I'm hoping to be able to pick it up again this Friday as it really is a very fun book (that and I promised my wife I'd finish it before we went out to see the movie).

Speaking of my wife and her forcing me to read things I have no interest in reading, she saw me watching a few episodes of Longmire on Netflix the other month so she bought me Wait for the Signs by Craig Johnson which is apparently what the TV series is based on. I don't have the heart to tell her that I read a spoiler about the TV show that made me write it off as crap not worth watching, but I love her, so I'll begrudgingly read the book. Who knows? Maybe I'll like it.

Speaking of TV though, anyone ever see Hell on Wheels? I'm only three episodes in but I kind of like it. Is it worth sticking through?
